The Boondock Saints ½

Part of my 20 least favorite film viewing experiences list.

Been long enough from this one that I can't remember if this is the first scene or just early in the movie, but we get a sequence of our dashing protagonists teaching a new worker (at their...meat packing plant?) all about how to work there. They use the phrase "rule of thumb," and she brusquely says that they shouldn't because it recalls a rule about beating your wife (likely apocryphal but besides the point). This heated discussion leads to our "noble" protagonists beating the shit out of this not conventionally attractive woman.

Man, learn to take a joke you man hating, ugly feminist lesbian, amirite?

This is the movie you're in for everyone. It's a movie about taking back America for the Americans. Nope, not the people who were here before Europeans colonized it. This is some white supremacy, masculinist bullshit masquerading as superheros. Or maybe this vile unwatchable filth is actually deep deep satire so buried in its protagonists whacked out heads that it's hard to escape.

...Nah.

I could list 100 examples about how bad this film is, but everyone with even a slice of decency admits that, even if they enjoy this film, it's got about the worst thematic garbage driving the cinematic bus.

I almost feel bad putting it on the bottom 20. A little too obvious. But, they can't all be surprises.
